The vampire headquarters in Blade II is called Caliban Industries. I
will resist over-analysing this name as an unreconstructed/provocative
reading of Caliban's role in The Tempest but it is perhaps worthy of
mention, particularly as the film has a strikingly wide range of
explicit cultural references and allusions.

Best,
Emma French
